A St. Patrick’s Day Scoop

Share

Time was, if you were an ice cream lover who also wanted to celebrate St. Patrick’s day (a group not as niche as you think), you had just a few options: Grab a Shamrock Shake at Mickey D’s or a purchase the terrifying Cookie O’Puss cake from Carvel.

 

While I applaud the sheer genius/laziness of Carvel’s design—they basically took the same Cookie Puss cake mold and added a whimsical hat—Cookie O’ is a horrifying monstrosity.

 

 

Luckily, things are looking up for fans of Gaelic-themed desserts. Knappogue Castle Single Malt Isrish Whisley and Clontarf Irish Whiskey have teamed up with Sam Mason and his OddFellows Ice Cream Co. in Williamsburg to create a flight of whiskey ice creams. Yes, you read that correctly: Whiskey Ice Cream.

 

There’s Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee ice cream made with Clontarf Irish Whiskey (named after the Worlds Best Bar); Knappogue Castle 14-Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey ice cream with sherry syrup; and Burnt Marshmallow ice cream with a Knappogue Castle 12 Year wash. The flight will cost you $12 and is available the entire month of March from the shop, located at 175 Kent Avenue. A cool $12 gets you a pint of the Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee flavor to take home
